fly fishing austin texas #flyfishingHey Austin area fly fishers: If you haven’t checked out the events page at Living Waters Fly Fishing, then you may not know that this is the busiest season for Chris Johnson, owner of Living Waters in Round Rock, Texas. Seeing a schedule like this leaves little doubt that the Central Texas area IS the epicenter of freshwater fly fishing in Texas.



January 24, Saturday – GRTU General Meeting
Chris will be the guest speaker at the GRTU general meeting and will be presenting on the lesser known side of the Guadalupe. His presentation will be focused around the multispecies opportunities that await those who fish the Guad in the warmer months. For more information, visit .

January 28, Wednesday – Fly Tying Night
Come join us for our regularly scheduled fly tying night. We meet at Pok-E-Jo’s BBQ at 6:00 P.M. for dinner and gather back at the shop around 7:00 P.M. for tying. Make sure that you tell Pok-E-Jo’s that you are with the Fly Tying Group, and you will get 10% off your meal! There is round table tying for those wanting to tie their own patterns, and there is also a designated “Fly of the Night,” for which all material and instruction is provided. FLY OF THE NIGHT: TBA

January 31, Saturday – TROUT DAY
9:00 A.M. – Doors Open / Round Rock Donuts
10:00 A.M. – Fly Fishing the Guadalupe Year-round
Chris will be giving a presentation on fly fishing the Guadalupe for a variety of species ranging from wintertime trout to warm water bass and sunfish!
1:00 P.M. – Tenkara Fishing for Trout
We are going to go through the basics of Tenkara and share a few rigging/fishing tips that are deadly when applied to our Southern trout tailwaters.
3:00 P.M. – Fly Fishing the Lower Mountain Fork River
Chris is a licensed guide in Oklahoma and guides private multi-day trips and fly fishing club outings on the Lower Mountain Fork River. The LMFR boasts a very strong population of both rainbow and brown trout and is an absolute delight to fish! Come and learn how to make the most of your next trout trip to Oklahoma.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE – – – FEBRUARY actually continues the momentum in Central Texas! I will have more details soon, but if you have a look on the left side of the page, you’ll see there’s a new ad for GRTU Troutfest Tickets. That link will get you straight to to purchasing ticket for the Friday night banquet.
